Stories are placed in order of the date they appeared.

March 28, 1910

Mobile, AL
"New Orleans Club at Mobile, Alabama Dixie Parks March 28."

"We played the New Orleans Club four games and broke even. While New Orleans has a fast bunch, they like a good deal of pleasing the Mobile fans until they refrain from leaving the field, especially when the home club has gone to $150 expense. They will make very little headway playing baseball in that way. I like an aggresive ball player, but when it comes to the style of kicking they did in Mobile, March 28, 29, 30, why, I'm forced to believe that home is the best place for them. We are in need of two pitchers, one outfielder and a shortstop. Any such player would do well to write me."

Mobile, AL
"Mobile Baseball Players Are At Game - The Cuban Stars and Dixie Parks, of Mobile, played April 5 in Mobile before about 1,000 fans and over. The Stars put up their usual exhibition of good ball playing, and the inside and general team work of the club was about the best seen in Mobile this year. The Mobile team secured more hits, but they were kept well scattered. Bee Turner pitched an excellent game for the home club. The feature of the game was the great catch of Myers in center field, and threw, cutting off a run of the visitors. Pediroso pitched the last four innings for the Stars, his control being perfect, striking out eight men and yielding only two 2-base hits during his stay in the box."

"Dixie Boys Outhit the Cuban Stars - But are Defeated by a Score of 8 to 7. - Mobile, Alabama, April 6. - The Dixie Park Baseball Club and the famous Cuban Stars, of Havana, Cuba, played a fine game April 5. Although we outbatted them, they beat us 8 to 7, this being our first attempt to play a professional club. We consider the showing grand."

Mobile, AL
"The Pensacola Giants beat us two straights, while we had no right to score, although we did in both games. Golstucker has the best bunch in this section, to my judgement - a clean set of players in every sense of the word. Any club traveling down this way can find open dates with us. I am informed that C.I. Taylor has gone to West BAden with his bunch of Birmingham Giants. I wish him much success, as the Birmingham Giants had the call in Mobile last season. All idle ball players that would like the South, please write me. David P. Johnson, Manager Dixie Park. 64 Government Street, Mobile, Alabama."

Mobile, AL
"Mobile, Alabama. - Special to the Freeman. - Handsome Peter has charge of the Mobile ball club; this is Mr. Clemmons. The club is down to business now and would like to have some good team to play on the 4th of July. Mobile is a good ball town, and like many cities, always likes fast and snappy ball games. Captain Sommerville, the park owner, says that he intends to give Mobile patrons of the game every first class accommodation in the new park."

Mobile, AL
"A Good Club. - The Mobile Club Strengthened. - Special to the Freeman. - The Mobile, Alabama Club has been strengthened by the addition of Davis and Ward from the Moss Point Giants. The fans say we have got the club now. In a recent series with the Pass Christiana team, the Mobile Club took all of the games."

July 23, 1910

Chicago, IL
"On Monday of this week the Chicago Baseball League passed a rule barring games between its members and all visiting colored ball clubs from now on, the rule being made to include the Cuban clubs that have been playing around the circuit the past two years. The rule will work very badly against the Stars of Cuba, who figured on playing on the Chicago League Circuit after the Cuban Stars left the city. This action means that the Chicago Leaguers will not play visiting colored teams any more in the future."
